image of Labour migrants from Central and Eastern Europe in the Nordic countries

This report presents the results from a project that has aimed to generate new comparative knowledge about labour migration from Central and Eastern Europe to the Nordic countries, the factors that shape wage and working conditions for labour migrants and recruitment processes and practices. In the report we:

- Describe and compare patterns of labour migration between Central and Eastern Europe and the Nordic countries.

- Compare the working conditions of Polish labour migrants in in Oslo, Copenhagen and Reykjavik – and analyse how their labour market situation is shaped by variations in national regulations, systems of collective bargaining and local labour market structures.

- Analyse the particular role of recruitment agencies in introducing new migrants to the Nordic labour markets.



The research has been conducted by a team of researchers from Fafo (Norway), FAOS (Denmark), CIRRA/MIRRA (Iceland), CMR (Poland) and SOFI (Sweden).

Temporary staffing and labour migration to Denmark

The temporary staffing industry in Denmark has within the last ten years experienced considerable increase and growth in employment and turnover, but also rapid decline with the arrival of the worldwide financial and economic crisis in 2008. Moreover, the composition of the workforce in the industry has changed substantially. In particular the share and number of temps from the new EU member states in Eastern Europe has increased within this period; a development that has received much attention among the different actors in the Danish labour market.
